Copy Editor/Proofreader: Now full time! Woo-hoo!
« on: September 20, 2018, 09:30:25 AM »

Finding the right people for your publishing team can be a challenge. When it comes time for copy editing and proofreading, you need someone who can catch the mistakes without compromising your voice. I believe in building solid, supportive working relationships with every author and understanding what they're looking for in each project.
You did the hard work of writing it, let me help you polish it for publication.


"Dj stepped in right after I lost my long-time editor and needless to say, I was nervous about starting the process of building that ever-important relationship between writer and editor with someone new, but Dj made it so easy. She was professional, helpful, and patient. I plan to utilize her services for many more stories to come."
-Bethany Claire, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Morna's Legacy Series

"Dj edited my scifi novels, skillfully navigating the alien terrain, removing all traces of “human error”. I’m not entirely convinced she isn’t a time-traveling Editbot from a future where linguistic errors have been declared illegal by a global grammar police.
Also, she met the deadline in spite of having to undergo an unforeseen surgery, getting the manuscript back to me in excellent shape literally a half hour before going under the knife. Bad*ss! Dj will be handling all my books going forward for as long as she is interested." 
-Andrei Cherascu, author of the science fiction series The Mind Malignancy

Copy editing:  $4.50-$8.00 per 1000 words
Proofreading:  $3.50 per 1000 words
NEW: Split rate for proofreading with light copyediting: $4.00 per 1000 words

I work on all subgenres of romance (including erotica - no bestiality, rape, incest, etc), women's fiction, YA, fantasy, paranormal, sci-fi, chick lit, thriller, and action-adventure. I'm also willing to work on non-fiction such as memoir or essay on a case by case basis. Length doesn't matter - short to epic is welcome!

Turnaround times are approximately two weeks for copy edits and one week for proofreading. Deadlines will be scheduled when we begin the process. Schedule and availability may change so if you are working on a tight deadline, please let me know so adjustments can be made.

I use Track Changes in Word. If you have another program, let's talk and see what we can do.

Please check out my website www.djhendricksonediting.com for more information about services, the editing process, and me, or email me at djh@djhendricksonediting.com

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Happy Writing!

 :catrun <- What Motli and Mayhem are currently doing across my desk :-)

Hello! Very exciting to see how much this board has grown! I've been busy with editing and life things and a much needed vacation and a few big decisions - including finally leaving the part-time day job! - so I haven't been checking in as regularly.

I have a few openings for proofreads or copy edits the weeks of November 19th and 26th. I'm also booking for December and beyond, with additional openings now that I'll be able to devote more hours per week to editing. I do a little happy dance every time I say that!

More information is available on my website at djhendricksonediting.com or by emailing me at djh@djhendricksonediting.com

Free samples of 1000 words are always available and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

Happy Writing!

Anyone else snowed in already? I'd about had it with fall allergies, but I wasn't ready for ice yet!

Oh, well, winter is great editing weather! I have a few spots still open in December for copy editing or proofreading, and I am booking for January, February and the great 2019 beyond. Free samples are always available of about 1000 words, and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. Email me at djh@djhendricksonediting.com or check out the website at www.djhendricksonediting.com for more information.

Happy Writing!
